Benjamin, Sarah and George Griffin are the sons and daughter of Isaac Blewett Griffin, of the Carpenters Arms, Princess Street, Marylebone. *
My great grandmother was Sarah Jane Blewitt Griffin, her brother was Benjamin Alipore Griffin; their father was Israel Blewitt Griffin. Sarah married Henry E Morgan in 1882 in Paddington. I have a deed setting up a post nuptial settlement in 1888, which refers to the " Royal Oak but now called or known by the name or sign of The Bridge House and being number 213 Upper Kennington Lane". *
